Canada Travel Guide - Quebec


Gatineau is situated on the northern bank of the Ottawa River, immediately across from Ottawa, Ontario, and is located within Canada's National Capital Region. Gatineau is located in western Quebec.

Gatineau's important tourist attractions include the Canadian Museum of Civilization and the Casino du Lac Leamy. In August, the Casino hosts an international fireworks competition, which opposes four different countries with the winner being awarded a Prix Zeus prize for the best overall show. At the beginning of September, Gatineau hosts an annual hot air balloon festival, which fills the skies with colourful gas-fired passenger balloons.

Visitors to Gatineau can enjoy the parks in the area, such as Lac Beauchamp Park. Streams of all sizes run through these natural expanses. Most of the city is on level ground but the Northern and Eastern parts lie on the beginnings of the foothills of the massive Canadian Shield, or Laurentian mountains - the "Gatineau Hills". One of Gatineau's urban parks, Jacques Cartier Park is used by the National Capital Commission during the popular festival, Winterlude.
